Two activations for personal use

A license for Soothe2 & Spiff comes with two simultaneous activations. You can manage the activations however you wish in the iLok License Manager. To learn how to activate your license on a new computer, please consult this article.

License vs. Activation

Please remember, that a license and an activation are different things. When you purchase a copy of Soothe, you get one license with two simultaneous activations. You can redeem your license once to your iLok account, after which you are free to use your activations as you please. Activations are managed in the iLok License Manager, not by using the code again.

Please note, that the two activations we offer are meant for personal use only, and must not be shared between individuals. We describe this in our End-User License Agreement you accept when using our products as follows:

“The software may be used by one (1) person and activated simultaneously on up to two (2) computers (e.g., one workstation and one laptop), provided that the software is only used on one computer at a time.”

Multi-seat Licenses

You should purchase a license for each seat (= room, computer) in a multi-seated studio, as sharing activations in a multi-user environment is not allowed. Please contact us for a possible deal for multiple license purchases!


Soothe’s iLok licenses support two simultaneous activations. You can activate Soothe on an iLok 2 / 3, and also locally on your computer, so no iLok USB key (or dongle) is needed.


If you purchased Soothe before the 23rd of May 2018, you are still entitled to three activations per license, even after migrating your license over to iLok license management.
